COVER STORY – Lent I’ve never found myself in a situation where I felt I needed to refuse a gift. Some obviously have. No honorable woman would ever, for example, accept a diamond ring while refusing a marriage proposal (as much as she might like to). Others may have found it necessary to refuse gifts […] Read More

Memory is a funny thing. Very often we remember what we’d like to forget and forget what we’d like to remember. I can clearly remember specific events in my childhood… yet I’m unable to remember a single event from an entire year. — The 22nd Psalm concludes with these words: “All the ends of the […] Read More

A name is more than a title, for nearly every name has a meaning. A name is more than  a title when actions are joined with that name. A name can also describe a person, telling us something about him. “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.” (John 10:11) In the […] Read More
